Yay, it is Wednesday (Tuesday night late, actually, but I’m all screwed up by the holiday week, keep reading) and that means it’s time for another opening week of new movies opening in theaters starting tomorrow. Every Wednesday the wide releases are profiled in a post here and we make plans to see them ASAP. On Saturdays usually (sometimes Sunday) I’ll make a NOW PLAYING REVIEWS post with reviews of the films with recommendations or not. Try to get this posted in time to make a decision so readers will know which movie we think is best for a Saturday night date.
This week is a bit unusual in that we’ve already seen one of the wide releases and it’s getting rave critic reviews. If you like mysteries then make plans to see …
Knives Out ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – we saw the advanced screening of this whodunit last weekend starring Daniel Craig as the detective and a curious and engaging cast of suspects. In our area this has showings 11/26 and 11/27 as well.
Unfortunately, once you’ve seen a good mystery and know the ending, the desire to rewatch the film is much less. The anticipation score below is to rewatch this movie again, not what I would have rated it before seeing it for the first time. Those of you seeing it for the first time, have fun!
Queen & Slim
I’m curious why these two turned a routine traffic stop gone bad into running away from the police. One of the characters in the trailer compared them to Bonnie and Clyde, see our detailed FIRST LOOK, which makes even less sense to me, but does increase my anticipation for seeing the film. So, maybe it was a successful strategy. This has matinee showings starting Wednesday 11/27.
Last week I mentioned that Dark Waters had opened limited in some theaters. It is showing starting 11/27 in our area as well. So, looking forward to seeing these three movies this week.
ANTICIPATION for Week of 11/27/19 MOVIES
How much on scale of 1-10 anticipating the 11-27-2019 movies?
- Queen & Slim – 5/10
- Knives Out – 4/10
- Dark Waters – 4/10
Are there screenings in our area to see these movies?
All three are wide screenings and available in our area, so the plan is to see all of them.
